Winthrop Statue Dedication 1880

Dublin Core

Title

Winthrop Statue Dedication 1880

Subject

Winthrop Statue

Description

On September 17, 1880, a statue of the first governor of Massachusetts, John Winthrop, was dedicated in Scollay Square. Sculpted by Richard Greenough, it was a duplicate of the statue that had been placed in the U.S. Capital. That the city chose Scollay Square as the site for such an important piece of public art speaks volumes about its stature of Square in Boston at the time. Read more about the statue in Francis Bremer's web essay "Remembering–and Forgetting–John Winthrop and the Puritan Founders."
